One thing I want to try to do more of this year is show multiple ways to wear one wardrobe staple. It’s a request I get often, and recently someone specifically asked for more outfits with Converse, so I thought I’d roundup three of my favorite looks from the past year featuring my white Converse Shoreline sneakers.
Before you ask, yes, it’s totally appropriate to wear white sneakers in the wintertime these days. In fact, I really love the fresh, clean look against a darker winter palette. That said, I’m jonesing for a pair of the grey. They would go with most of these outfits as well as the white, and they give off an even more casual, carefree vibe. And while we’re at it, how fun are these orange Chucks!?! Okay, I’ll stop now, but you really can’t go wrong with any of them.
For the purpose of this post, I’m featuring white Chucks because that’s what I have. These outfits are all from last winter, ironically. I really should wear my Chucks more, but I tend to gravitate to ballet flats for the same purpose.
3 Ways to Wear White Converse Shoreline This Winter
OUTFIT #1: White Converse with black skinnies, grey tee, and burgundy leather jacket. (original post here)
You could sub a cardigan for the leather jacket, since I know burgundy leather jackets aren’t typically in everyone’s closet, but the general idea here is that the Chucks look unexpected and sharp against the black deconstructed denim. My burgundy denim jacket has a removable grey hood, which keeps it casual, so I just paired it with a basic grey v-neck tee.
OUTFIT #2: White Converse with olive cargo pants, white tank, and black hoodie. (original post here)
I built this outfit around the black hoodie. I bought it as workout wear, and I often wear it over my workout clothes on the way to the gym, but it’s too cute to keep for just my workouts. For a casual day at home, I like to wear it with jeans and sneakers. This outfit is just a little more dressed up than wearing yoga pants, but every bit as comfortable. I like how the white tank coordinates with the white sneakers. It’s not necessary to have white somewhere else in the outfit (see outfit #1) but I think it is nice when it works out.
OUTFIT #3: White Converse with cropped skinnies, pullover, and bold infinity scarf. (original post here)
I could totally wear ballet flats with this outfit, and I typically would, but the Converse are fun for a change, and they help dress it down a bit. Any basic pullover would work. I like the light oatmeal-grey color of this one with the pop of red in the scarf and bag. Of course, the sneakers have the red trim, which pulls it all together perfectly.
BONUS: 2 Casual Dresses with Converse
I realize I posted all skinny jeans. I think they’re the easiest thing to wear with Converse in the winter because it’s too cold in most areas for dresses without tights (and I don’t recommend wearing tights with Converse.)
If you live in an area with mild winters, you can pretty much pair Converse with any casual dress.
If you have a long-sleeve version, like this striped shift dress, that would be perfect with Chucks this time of year.
